Eating Dirt

For cooking club on Friday we got to learn all about composting and recycling to get ready for Earth Day. We learned that when you mix the ingredients in your compost pile (food scraps, egg shells, and sometimes even worms) you get a really nutrient rich soil that is good for the garden. We got to make out own dirt, complete with worms to eat out of flower pots. I don't know if it was as healthy for us as compost is for the garden, but it sure did taste good! Our favorite part was beating on the Oreo cookies with a rolling pen to make the dirt!
